* BigGood: Even though Admiral Hackett is commanding the combined forces of the Council races, and Admiral Anderson is leading the resistance on Earth, both characters point out that Shepard is the key to victory. They are a symbol and inspiration to the soldiers fighting the war, is the one responsible for uniting the disparate races into a force capable of challenging the Reapers, and is the single most experienced soldier when it comes to actually fighting them.

*** ''Double'' Inverted though if Wreav is the krogan leader instead of Wrex. Although curing the genophage saves the krogan race, Wreav makes no secret that he intends to basically restart the Krogan Rebellions once the Reapers are dealt with, which would plunge the galaxy right into another bloody war.
* BittersweetEnding: As the game outright tells you in the first 5 minutes, you cannot save everyone. It is possible to lose allies and entire species before you even reach the final battle, [[spoiler: and regardless of which choices or endings you get, you ''will'' have to sacrifice quite a lot to win, in most cases Shepard and the Citadel as well]].

** A really dark example can possibly occur. Tali has a combat knife strapped to her boot throughout all three of the games. [[spoiler: If Shepard screws up his chance to bring peace to the Quarians and Geth and sides with the Quarians in the resulting conflict, Tali is forced to stab Legion with it.]]

* ClassReunion: Pretty much the entire point of the Citadel DLC. Not only is this the only time in Mass Effect that Shepard and his/her ''entire squad'' (plus Wrex!) go kick ass together, and (in the Armax Arena) the only time you can form a team with colleagues from across game boundaries (e.g. Jack and EDI together, or Grunt and Wrex), but the ensuing party at Shepard's apartment can include every single current and former squadmate, if still alive, plus Joker, Traynor and Cortez. It even climaxes with the obligatory TeamShot! The only squadmembers who can never be at the party are [[spoiler: Morinth, who if still alive is now a Banshee; Thane, whose scripted death has already occurred (although the DLC does include a memorial service for him, and a poignant video message for Shepard); Legion, who dies unavoidably on Rannoch; and Mordin, who even if he survived Tuchanka is in hiding (but he leaves a very funny audio log).]]

* DawnOfAnEra: The extended cut endings all present a new era for the galaxy, although [[spoiler: Synthesis]] is the most dramatic shift. [[spoiler: If you and Wrex cured the genophage, the krogan get their cultural renaissance. If you made geth-quarian peace and don't pick Destroy, they manage to share Rannoch]].
